of the united states. what was remarkable is what mitt romney didn't say. he didn't explain a single thing that he learned as the leader of bain capital that would translate into being president of the united states. i think that was the problem. up with specific thing he did say that we could really learn from is he talked about one company that bain capital did invest in, which is a company that bain capital invested $18 million in. maybe he learned that government helps create jobs twice as much as private equity. >> what was your reaction? >> i thought it was really weird. it seemed like our decision was no decision at all. you just said i don't know. that is what we are seeing over several days. this was an interview that was by no means a hard ball set of questions but basic questions like tell us what you did and is this what you need to know? i have learned a lot in my entire life. it made it sound like he had more to hide than he has to hide. >> he started attacking the president. it was as if the interview was with a surrogate of the president as opposed to the candidate himself.
? >> god bless you. god bless the united states of america. now i want to shake some hands. >> the breaking news at this hour is that president obama is on his way back to the united states after his address to the nation from bagram airfield in afghanistan on the one-year anniversary of s.e.a.l. team six's successful mission to get osama bin laden. tonight the commander-in-chief hailed the united states military's accomplishments in afghanistan. >> we broke the taliban's momentum. we built strong afghan security forces. we devastated al qaeda's leadership taking out over 20 of their top 30 leaders. and one year ago, from a base here in afghanistan, our troops launched the operation that killed osama bin laden. the bold goal that i set to defeat al qaeda and deny it a chance to rebuild is now within our reach. >> the president then described the path forward for the united states after its combat troops withdraw from afghanistan by the end of 2014. >> emerge from a decade of conflict abroad and economic crisis at home. it's time to renew america. an america where our children live free from
, and it was the right thing to do. >> the president of the united states today chose an interview with robin roberts to make news and to make history. >> over the course of several years as i talked to friends and family and neighbors, when i think about members of my own staff who are incredibly committed, monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, raising kids together, when i think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf, and yet feel constrainted, even now that don't ask, don't tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point i just concluded that for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same-sex couples should be able to get married. >> white house officials are leaking a background story that sounds like the stuff of fiction and just may be. as the story goes, the president planned to announce his support for marriage equality sometime before the democratic national convention in september, but then vice president biden said this on "meet the press." >>
of the president of the united states being secretly foreign. that is your history forever. now it's time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell". >> wow, talk about a coincidence, the biggest liar of the presidential campaign is raising money tonight in vegas, with america's biggest pathological liar. mitt romney accepts and plays the trump card. >> doubling down vegas style. >> honeymoon in vegas. >> mitt romney's fund-raiser. >> a $2 million las vegas fund-raiser. >> with donald trump tonight. >> i want to say thank you to donald trump for his endorsement. >> donald trump. donald trump. >> why? >> why? >> why? >> the place of birth movement. >> you are courting disaster. >> this is about raising money. >> mitt romney is not going to have trouble raising money. >> how do you let a guy, donald trump. >> chair a $2 million fund-raiser who thinks that the president of the united states is illegitimate. what is the benefit here? >> i just don't even -- >> i thought your introduction was highly inappropriate. >> there is some very nasty undertones. >> he was born in kenya. >> this is the most obn
forward. we will finish what we started. god bless the united states of america. >> with two new polls out today, the issue of the day is marriage equality. a new poll shows romney at 48% and president obama at 47% while a u.s. today gallop poll of 12 key swing states has president obama at 47 and romney at 45%. an amendment that would ban same sex marriage in the state would be on the ballot tomorrow. president obama quietly registered his opposition to the amendment two months ago in a written statement put out by his north carolina campaign spokesmen. but what joe biden said on meet the press yesterday put marriage equality in the center of the campaign today. >> is that what you believe? >> that's what i believe. >> are you comfortable with same sex marriage now? >> look, i am vice president of the united states of america. the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying men, they are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights and liberties. i don't see much of a distinction beyond that. >> in a second term, wo
that the president of the united states is illegitimate. what is the benefit here? >> i just don't even -- >> i thought your introduction was highly inappropriate. >> there is some very nasty undertones. >> he was born in kenya. >> this is the most obnoxious swill. >> a kind of feud between donald trump and george will. here's how it standarded. >> the cost of appearing with this bloviating. >> george will may be the dumbest and most overrated political commentator of all time. >> i don't understand the benefit, what is romney seeking? >>> the romney campaign gets too celebrate their victory in the texas primary tonight and they're clinching of the republican nomination, officially. they get to celebrate that tonight in las vegas. where the romney campaign collided with the bloviating ignoramus on tv today. you have one second to guess what he's going to talk about. time's up. >> nothing's changed my mind. his mother is definitely in the hospital, they don't even know which hospital it was. his grandmother said he was born in kenya. i've been known as being a very smart guy for a long time. i d

of the united states of america. the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying men, they are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights and liberties. i don't see much of a distinction beyond that. >> in a second term, would this administration come up behind same sex marriage? >> i can't speak to that. i don't know the answer to that. but i can tell you -- >> it sounds like you would like to see it happen. >> the president continues to fight whether it's don't ask don't tell or whether it's making sure across the board that you cannot discriminate. this is evolving. >> evolving is the word president obama used to describe his own feelings at a news conference on the day he signed the repeal of don't ask don't tell. >> my feelings about this are constantly evolving. i struggle with this. i have friends, i have people who work for me who are in powerful, strong, long lasting gay or lesbian union. my baseline is a strong civil union that provides protections and legal rights that married couples have and i think t
create jobs as president of the united states and the argument was presented by their top campaigner, the president himself. >> my view of private equity is that it is set up to maximize profits. that's not always going to be good for communities or businesses and more. when you are president, your job is not simply to maximize profits. if your main argument was that i made a lot of money for investors, you are missing what this job is about. the reason this is relevant to the campaign is because my opponent, governor romney, his main calling card for why he thinks he should be president is his business experience. if the main basis for him suggesting he can do a better job is his track record, then both the up sides and the downsides are worth examining. >> the president made those remarks in response to a reporter's question on what corey booker said on sunday's "meet the press". >> i'm not about to sit here and indict private equity. they have done a lot to support businesses to grow businesses. >> the president, it seems, does not share the discomfort. >> this is not a distractio
that people in the united states are working more hours for less pay, the 99%/1% distribution models that we have been discussing so much over the past three months play into that. and if you are into fame values and you want people to have time and live a good life. ultimately you want people to make more so that they can also have time at home and time with their family. and if you want to do that, you have labor supported so they can try to bring up the bargaining power in the private market, or you have higher minimum pages which is something that romney has come out against. >> rush limbaugh is now saying that the purpose of bain capital was not to create jobs. is it now time for mitt romney to follow the gop pr spokesperson, rush limbaugh and accept that bain capital was about wealth and not about jobs? >> it truly pains me to say this, rush limbaugh is absolutely right. and i think -- i just wanted to say that. but i think that -- >> i can see your pain, by the way. >> i think romney has gotten himself into a box and the obama campaign it's whole effort now is to sort of bang the nail
about. it is why we must elect mitt romney as the next president of the united states. [ applause ] >> you have already seen what mitt romney looks like when he is lying. so his performance today carries no surprise. >> congressman, michele bachmann, what a powerful leader in our party she is. what a privilege it is to have their endorsements. >> there wasn't anyone at that romney campaign event today including mitt romney who didn't know what michele bachmann was really thinking. >> mitt romney is the big government candidate. that's not what we want in our nominee. it doesn't even survive the falling off the chair laughing test. >> joining me now, alex wagner, the host of msnbc now and chris hayes, the most of msnbc up with chris hayes. both of them that surprised the falling off the chair laughing test. >> we are just back from the floor, lawrence. >> just barely. >> there was much laughter here during michele bachmann's endorsement. i guess we are going to have to call it. >> i guess we are going to have to call it there. you know, lawrence, it makes me sad this week. we said
of understand that gay marriage is going to be a reality in the united states of america. but you still have folks like franklin graham out there who say this is a sad day in america. this is a fire and brimstone prescription we have brought to the country by recognizing that two people of the same sex who are in love should be able to get married. >> the clip of romney talking to the colorado reporter where they asked about gay marriage and undocumented students getting tuition. there was a time if you were a republican candidate you would love those three softballs being lobbed to you so you could crush them out of park with cultural war ferocity. instead he got ticked at the reporter because the worm has turned. they want this election to be everyday about what the unemployment rate is and about the economy and barack obama. any time they are not talking about that they think they are losing. you can see it in the reaction to them. >> let's listen to one of the romney tacticians today to your point about how hot a campaignish shaw this used to be for republicans. chuck todd asked ed gille
create jobs as president of the united states. today vice president joe biden translated that message. >> making money for your investors, which romney did very well is not the president's job. your job as president is to promote the common good. that doesn't mean the private equity guys are bad guys, they're not, but that no more qualifies you to be president than being a plumber. >> the vice president also honed in on bain capital. >> when they succeed and the company succeeds, they make money. when the company they get involved with fails, they still make money. it's legitimate. but folks, making money regardless of the consequences for the workers, the companies they ache wire tor the communities that get wasted is another question. now republicans like to note that some democrats are uncomfortable with the obama campaign mentions of mitt romney's record at bain capital. a new pro-obama superpac ads reminds republicans that some republicans do not share that discomfort. >> i happen to think that companies like bain capital could have come in and helped these companies if they trul
gingrich and i'm announcing my candidacy for president of the united states. >> newt gingrich. >> newt gingrich. >> newt gingrich. >> gingrich. >> gingrich. >> suspending his campaign. >> finally calling it quits. >> with the longest good-bye in political history. >> today i'm suspending the campaign. >> newt, we knew you. >> i could neither predict the low points or the high points. >> i don't think he ever got his mo-jo back. >> he's the person to claim. >> don't try to blame somebody else. >> he had his own destiny. >> i'm committed to going all the way to tampa. >> we're going to go all the way to tampa. >> we will be in tampa as the nominee in august. >> the campaign, which was clearly over a month ago -- >> romney and the super pac spent $20 million. >> are you calling mitt romney a liar? >> yes. >> how does newt gingrich get all of that back? >> there was a hot and heavy campaign. >> newt gingrich showed a lot of great bravado. >> we will have the first permanent space on the moon. >> he's an idea person. >> it's a gun a glower rouse ride for you. >> the game is not over yet. >>
's as simpleth he promised us the same things he promised the united states. he'll give you the same thing he gave us. nothing. he'll take it all. >> today the romney campaign fought back with an ad featuring unemployed workers in iowa. >> i've been looking for a job for two years, haven't found any. my unemployment benefits did run out. and we're just trying to get by. >> an endorsement news today, after giving a speech for the george w. bush presidential center, former president george w. bush said as elevator doors closed on him, quote, i'm for mitt romney. according to abc news. today on "the view," president obama tried to link mitt romney to the policies of george w. bush. >> i think he's been very successful and we should applaud success in this country. but he has a different vision about how to move the country forward. his theory is that if you slash taxes even further, if you leave business, banks, whoever, to do whatever it is that they want, then everything will be okay. >> but that didn't work last time. why do they think it's going to work this time? >> well, that's my argument
barack obama got elected to the united states senate. general motors the did that back when john kerry was running against george w. bush for president. and mitt romney, today, brings up, quote, the demise of oldsmobile, in today's presidential campaign. the problem for mitt is the people who know exactly when oldsmobile was consolidated into buick by general motors are michigan voters. a new reuters poll shows mitt romney trailing president obama nationally among registered voters. president obama leads romney by seven points, 49 to 42%. the president is also leading romney on six of eight issues polled. taxes, health care, medicare, social security, the war on terror and afghanistan. on the other two issues polled, jobs and the economy, and immigration, president obama and mitt romney poll in a statistical tie. joining me now is can democratic strategist and msnbc contributor, krystal ball, and "washington post" opinion writer and msnbc political analyst, e.j. dionne. krystal, you remember oldsmobile, right? >> the thing with romney. >> it's like his -- it's like it's his father talk
create a more united states. the more you know. >>> the november ballot is set in the u.s. senate race in nebraska, a seat that is key to keep control of the united states senate. kerry easily won with 37% of the vote. mitt romney, by the way, won the presidential primary with only 71% of the vote. and in the three way republican senate primary, attorney general john bruney who was favored to win was upset by state senator deb fisher who was endorsed by sarah palin. todd palin recorded a robo call for her on the eve of the election. fisher won with 41% of the vote. bruning, who had been endorsed by the chamber of commerce, rick santorum and mike huckabee got only 36% of the vote. and state treasurer don stinberg who was backed by jim demint got a mere 19%. today sarah palin offered her congr congratulations on facebook. as recently as a week ago deb fischer was dismissed by the accomplishment. i applaud moms like deb fischer who are bold enough to step up and run on a conservative platform, to restore america and protect our children's rights. and so in nebraska, it's now bob kerry ver
'll be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the united states. >> joining me now democratic strategist and msnbc's contributor, salon.com and msnbc analyst steve cornaki and steve xlenlz. thank you for joining me. crystal, the reason i wanted to s show that dick cheney tape is that was a new form of president aal campaigning in my memory for dick cheney to say in 2004, if you elect john kerry, we will be attacked again, presumably because john kerry's judgment on national security was so horrible. for republicans to be playing this game of outrage today at the president's campaign simply saying, look, this is what he actually did as an amaze turn-around from where dick cheney was in 2004. >> not only where he was in 2004 but right before president obama was elected and even after he was elected where esdz the same thing. that he felt that president obama's policies would make us less safe from a terrorist attack, and now suddenly republicans have decided now that they're on the losing end of foreign policy really frankly for the first time in quite a long time. su
